    Two Jewish women (Ruth and Golda) were walking along the street. Ruth says to Golda, "My son, Irving, is finally getting married. He tells me he is engaged to a wonderful girl, but ...he thinks she may have a disease called herpes."

    Golda says to Ruth, "Do you have any idea what this herpes is, and can he catch it?"

    Ruth answers, "I don't know, but I am just so thrilled to hear about Irving's engagement. It's past time he's settled. As far as the herpes goes...who knows?"

    "Well," Golda says, "I have a very fine medical dictionary at home --I'll look it up and call you."

    So, Golda goes home, looks it up, and calls Ruth...,

    "Ruth, keinahurra (thank goodness!), I found it. Not to worry! It says: Herpes is a disease of the gentiles.' "
